A strong educational system is the foundation of a prosperous future for Idaho and our nation.       

I have long believed that the responsibility of educating our youth lies first with parents and also with teachers and local school officials chosen by parents.  Parents and local school boards know our children best and they should decide what should be taught and how our education dollars should be spent, not the federal government.

Nevertheless, there is a proper role for the federal government in education.  The federal government can assist and partner with state and local school districts and provide support for needed educational objectives.
